IDEA

you can divide the delivery mission into two steps :

( autonomous flying + remote controlled flying )

1- the drone can carry the order from the shop and then ( depending on the buyer location USING the GPS ) the drone gets as close as possible to the location )

2- using a remote control and a camera you can fly the drone to a specific delivery point.

I already had that in my plan. But my idea was to install some kind of sensors like ultrasonic or any other.
But now that you have explained about 360 degree cam., can you explain more about it?
How can it be used for obstacle avoiding?

Image Processing. Need some field proven Obstacle Avoiding Algorithms. I think its already available. We can modify or simplify it too, and get more efficient Algorithms. For example, all Driver-less car Use some kind of Real Time Image Processing based on Real Time Video to avoid Real Time Obstacles. We can come up with our own necessary Algorithms for this.

And its good to utilize Multiple Senses for Autonomous Navigation, GPS, Image Processing, Sound Processing, more Sensors more Robust.

based on my past experiences with image processing plus sensory work , i think simply use the IMU with 9 axis quad copter plus a single non gimbaled camera at the center below of drone.

we will not be able to use any such ultrasonic arrays or sensors as they would be flying in areas where there are external disturbance which may cause the error in the stablisation and navigation system
What can be done is to make the copter autonomous we need to develop a dedicated on board system for visual navigation which means u need robust computer vision algorithms and equally strong processing power for instantaneous decision
kinda complicated
